You make so many nonsensical statements so I am not bothering with you anymore. How can you make sense in what you believe if it is obviously without faith in the Gospels.<quoted text>
One person writing decades after any occurrence would alert anyone with...."Hmmm, I wonder what has changed in those 50-100 years"
Do you have any contemporary sources that validates this?
Why do you believe Thomas in this passage, but reject his gospel of nothing but sayings and teachings by Jesus?
You are now starting to sound confused in your belief.....makes one say..."Hmmmmm"....
Nicene Creed - written by men.
- Edgar Cayce prophecised that Atlantis would be found in 1969 and the Bimini Road was discovered that same year. One, if using your logic, would indicate that Atlantis is also on the verge of being discovered, yet you won't believe this. Hmmmmm
Men wrote about this "spiritual awakening" and somehow decided to make it a solitary experience that no one can attain. Sounds selfish? Because it is. I causes a false belief in the transition of our Spirit to the afterlife - "God's realm". But hey, you think you can't attain this status, not a problem. I completely understand. You don't want to, and you have that right. That would also be free will making that choice - and I call it Self [which is also Spirit].
I get to believe what I want and succeed in "God's kingdom", and you get no say in it. Bummer, huh?
*whispers* Self again.
Do you think "Paul" was more enlightened than Jesus?
His Spirit is "immortal" - I guess in your use of the word. We all will become this "immortal" being. But you refuse to, right? You shake at the notion of the possibility. This is why you are a "Christian" - they put you in fear of a loving god.
Bummer for you.
BTW - if you noticed - I answered all of those same claims that you made. You see, I'm honest enough to know that those claims are of men. If you think otherwise, then you limit your "God".
My Father is unlimited in his inspiration.
That is the difference between you and I.
Learn it, love it, live it.
You lack reality when it comes to things like immortality.
Mostly you speak nonsense and I am finished with it.
A man convinced against his will
is of the same opinion still.
